Our Preschool Program is designed to help children develop the more complex range of skills characteristic of this age that will prepare them for kindergarten.
Those skills include developing self-awareness, taking responsibility for one’s actions, problem solving and logical thinking, and the beginning of symbolic thinking.
Emphasis is also placed on continuing language development by increasing vocabulary through more focused conversation and through consistent pre-reading and writing activities.
Kirby provides children with a broad array of stimulating experiences to help children experiment, build relationships and become more independent while emphasizing the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Kirby is a flagship center for the Healthy U program which teaches preschool children the importance of physical activity and healthy nutrition.
We provide transportation to the Family Center for children enrolled in our Swimming, Gymnastics, Dance and Sports classes and for monthly field trips.
Children also have the option to register for age appropriate enrichment classes held at Kirby.
